Mathematics and Physics, BS

Degree: Bachelor of Science (BS)
Major: Mathematics and Physics

Program Overview

In contrast to the BS in applied mathematics or the BS in physics with a mathematical physics concentration, this degree provides a synergistic, coherent, and parallel education in mathematics and physics. To a close approximation, the challenging coursework corresponds to combining the mathematics and physics cores, with the Physics Laboratory cluster replaced by a single, fourth-year laboratory semester. The program is jointly administered by the Department of Physics and the Department of Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, and Statistics. Students may be advised by faculty members from either department.

The BS degree in mathematics and physics requires a total of 120 credit hours.
